The South Carolina Conference on Instruction Literacy is a new conference focused on providing instruction librarians a space for professional development and networking opportunities. Based in Charleston, South Carolina, we welcome any and all librarians who are interested in learning about new classroom strategies, instruction ideas, or anything else involved in teaching students information literacy skills.
Please think about and prepare proposals engaging with the theme of RESHAPING THE FUTURE OF INSTRUCTION. How have you reshaped the future of your practice? What strategies do you employ to prepare for potential instruction issues? What pedagogies, tools, or practices have you considered (or discarded) on your path? How have you prepared for changes in your practice due to the current environment? What have you changed based on previous setbacks?
- We’d love to see proposals about:
- Engagement & Outreach
- Critical Information Literacy
- Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Instructional Services
- Hiring (writing job descriptions), Onboarding, and Management in Instructional Services
- Professional Tips for New Instruction Librarians
- Reflective Practice, Morale, & Self Care
- Technology tools for creating instruction
- Active learning in an online environment
- Tutorials/Asynchronous Instruction
- Format Types:
- 60+ minute sessions:
- Mediated Roundtable – you come up with a problem that can be solved and serve as the mediator in a small group of people
- Cracker Barrel (rotating presentations) – The Cracker Barrel is a very short session repeated three times in 75-mins. The presenter usually provides a brief introduction to the topic, and participants are invited to comment and ask questions. After 20 minutes, when the bell rings, participants will move on to another breakout session, and the presenter will repeat the presentation to a new group. Three groups will pass by each breakout session in a 75-mins period.

- Panel discussions (4+ speakers)
- Problem based discussion – you come up with a problem that can be solved and serve as the mediator in a small group of people.
